Abstract

Neurological features of severe hypoglycemia range from reversible focal deficits to irreversible coma or death. Diffusion weighted MRI of brain image is a useful tool in evaluating profound hypoglycemic brain injuries. We report a case of 27 year old male who died from brain injuries following an episode of prolonged hypoglycemia. We here discuss the neuropathological and diffusion-MRI changes of hypoglycemic brain injuries and its prognostic importance.
